My sister and I had to make an unexpected trip to Granby and found this great B&B on the web. Wayne and Kim could not have been more gracious! We loved staying in the Connecticut Room with the large private bath including a jacuzzi tub. Our breakfast was delicious and they were so gracious in accommodating our dietary requirements. We...

It's always easy to be good hosts when we have such great guests like we get. I know when we go stay at B & B's it the personalities of the hosts that make the stay memorial. Kim and I always try to put ourselves in the guests shoes so that we know how they would like to be treated.... More

Wonderful breakfast and very warm hosts make the Truman Gillet House B&B worth a stop. The house is small and charming. Built in 1805, the owners have maintained the historical nature of the property from the simple elegant furnishings down to the original doors and door handles of the rooms. A very nice stay. The property is close to a... More

Sammy is correct the back bedroom is quieter. It always amazes my how it's all in the guests prospective. I try to always ask how the guest's night sleep was and to my surprise how many times guests tell me that it was the most comfortable bed they've ever slept on. I may mention that I was sorry of a...

Wayne and Kim sure know how to make folks feel welcome! We had a most comfortable and quiet stay in the beautiful Connecticut countryside. Great location in such a quiet setting, yet just a short distance to Bradley International Airport. And, oh, those pancakes!!! Delicious! We would love to go back.

Christine, The pancakes are "Delicious!" because my Mom would invite us kids into the kitchen to make whatever we were requesting to eat. So by the time I got married to Kim I could bake blue berry and black berry pies from scratch with the crust, no store bought stuff here. I could make sour dough bread and have a... More

My review is long overdue, but better late than never! I stayed at the Truman Gillet House B&B about a month ago for one night on business.

Jen was interested in the house so I gave her a brief history of it. Many families have lived here and each owner of this house has left their foot prints in the sands of time. My wife Kim and I are just stewards of the house while we're here. We've had over 650 guests so far stay a night... More

We serve fresh fruits, free range eggs (ask to see the different sizes of these eggs from medium to extra super large that we get from a local farmer), Sunny Field organic yogurts and we never use simple white bread. We try to make it a great start to our guests day. More

We stayed with Wayne and Kim in late June of 2016 and had a terrific experience. The communication was excellent with Wayne confirming our itinerary prior to our visit. We appreciated the opportunity to notify them ahead of time of any dietary restrictions which we might have. Their home is very relaxing and comfortable with a large common living area... More

We ask all our guests some questions so that we can be prepared for their arrival time, dietary needs and directions to a local restaurant. I'm surprised that many guests want the smaller room instead of the larger suite that has so much more. But many guests are coming just to rest there heads and don't need the whirlpool tub,... More

We liked our cute little room which was quite comfortable. In the evening we relaxed in the living room and enjoyed the ability to spread out. The suite was unoccupied when we arrived so our host gave us a peek. It's a beautiful large room that we would book the next time in the area. Breakfast was excellent.
